LOL like the new photo. :P

I think Melinda should go home, but I'm not so sure the judges want ANOTHER female leaving. That would leave them with two women and six men.

I think it's inevitable that a guy or two will not get enough votes this round and one of them will go home.

Thanks for posting the thread. Have fun at camp!

Yeah, this season seems to be a mess. I thought it was bad when they had to do the finale with six people in season six, but this seems to be worse. I hope Neil returns this week.

That Alex/Twitch routine was so good. Even though I consider Alex to be a ringer he really showed me something.

The show is sort of losing me. I'm just bored with so much of it. Even the Ade routine, who I love watching dance, just bored me.

Thought it was a great show tonight. Alex and Twitch were the highlight for me and I'm sure many others. I think Alex is going all the way. Is Mary going to judge at all this season? I can't wait to see the tour.

Adechikie - finally had an enjoyable dance to watch, but I attribute All-star Lauren in helping out, she's just fun to watch.

Ashley - Solid partnering with Ade in a very good number.

Jose - Still gliding along by his charisma.

Billy - He is a train-wreck in the partnering aspect, so I was mainly focused on Kathryn yet again.

Melinda - At least she tries, but she's the next to go, in comparison to the rest of the contestant, she looks like she's the one dancing with 2 left feet.

Kent - Still very much a pageanty dancer, and he got called on it this time around, so how will people like a more subdued Kent next week?

Robert - Far too much emphasis on his stretch-ability and flexibilty with not much chemistry in the partnering. Courtney was an after-thought in this number.

Lauren - Made a good recovery after the wardrobe malfunction, and ended up in the middle of the pack of performances.

Alex - totally owned his number, and deserved all the applause and love from the audience and the judges. I actually watched his number twice.

This was much better than last week's show.

Alex had a fantastic solo and number. He is a shoo-in to win.

Jose had a good solo but weak samba. Melinda had a weak solo but good salsa number. Kent and Lauren did good. Adechike's solo was alright, he can do better. He did well with LaurenG. Ashley basically got stuck doing contemporary three times in a row. She did ok though. I hope she isn't in the bottom 3.

I forgot some things, will have to re-watch some things later. But I think the bottom 3 will be Jose, Robert, and Melinda with Melinda leaving.

Adechike finally "showed up" for the show. I was wondering how he was even still on it last week--but he did great this week; really came out of his shell.

Ashley I'm liking more and more.

Lauren finally got a number that fit her well and we got to see what she can do.

Jose's
just cool, even if he can't dance as well as the others.

Alex.
Wow. Alex. I watched his number three times. I LOVED it. Is there anything this guy can't do?

Kent
...sorry, bud, not your night.

Billy...not your night either. Well, not your season so far really, but I know you've got it in you.

Robert seems to be falling apart at the seams. After a first strong week, he may be the first guy to go home.

Melinda, you shouldn't still be there...but the judges shouldn't tell you that. That's just cruel. I'd like to see the other performers even TRY tapping. At least you're able to compete as one of the top 10 they could find.

Unless the judges just want to get rid of a guy, I think Melinda's out tomorrow. Otherwise, it'll be Robert. If Melinda does go, I think she'll be the last girl for a while. Ashley is rock-solid and Lauren seems to have a lot of fans--and she can bring it with the right number.

Is no one else even slightly disturbed that Billy jacked off all over the stage?

Damn, I hate that guy.

That Twitch/Alex hip hop number was one of the most enjoyable numbers I have ever seen on the show, and I've been watching since season 1. Love the whole concept behind it, love how it was danced. Amazing.
I also loved the ashley/ade number concept about dancing without legs. And I dont think Lauren is getting enough credit for what a fabulous dancer she is. She smolders on stage and may not have the grace of Ashley, but she is a powerful dancer. I would like to see Ashley in something else besides contemporary.

No surprise at Melinda leaving, except that it leaves only 2 females now. I doubt either of them will leave over the next few rounds. The good news is, all the rest of the contestants are really good dancers. Should leave us guessing the rest of the season.

Well, I re-watched the Alex-Twitch hip-hop and I didn't think it was THAT great.

Glad Ashley and Lauren were safe, surprised Billy was in bottom 3 and Jose wasn't. Robert should be finished next week.

Cool to see the garden dance again. Would be fun to see Lauren and Neil try the night flame dance on that stage.

I'm suprised that Melinda left and not Robert. Not that Melinda was better than Robert overall, but the ratio of guys to girls is way out of whack now.

By the way, have they said how many will be in the finals? That is, will eliminations go until there are two left, or four left, or what?

I was happy when Nigel said next week will be two dances for each contestant: one with a pro as they've been doing, and one with a competitor like in previous seasons. I love the all-stars but I also miss that contestant-partnering dynamic, so this is sort of the best of both worlds for me.

With Melinda gone I wonder if the remaining girls will more or less get a free pass from the judges for a few weeks, regardless of how they do.

I agree!

I don't know if the judges will give them a free pass, but I think America will. Since we're not voting someone out, but rather the people we like in, I anticipate that when America votes, there will only be so many votes for guys.

I guess 2 pairs of guy contestants will be dancing with each other next week, along with an all-star partner of the opposite gender (perhaps) for their other number.
